Electricity Saving Tips For Homes And Offices

Solar Panel Price in India

By on November 17, 2017

Electricity is becoming expensive with each passing day and more people are getting interested in using solar energy to meet their electricity needs. Power cuts and dependence on DG sets is making people look for more and better sources. Solar PV panels provide a very good alternative. Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE), Government of India is also promoting solar PV systems under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission in the country. They also provide a subsidy to people buying solar panels under this scheme. There are a lot of people keen to buy solar panels in India so we thought of doing a research on the price of solar panels. 

  • As per our research (on e-commerce sites selling solar PV) and resources from the solar PV industry, cost of a PV module (just the panel) costs anywhere between Rs 30 to Rs 50 per watt of power generated (depending on the quantity you are buying).
  • The modules having higher Watt power capacity are cheaper per Wp as compared to modules with lower Watt power capacity. The efficiency of solar panels is also better for modules of higher Watt power as compared to modules of lower Watt power.
  • There is not much difference in price between imported and Indian solar panels. But if you are looking for a subsidy, then the only option that you have is to go for Made in India panels.
  • If you are living in an area where power cuts are less frequent and you want to implement solar PV system to reduce your electricity bills then the best solution would be to go for a Grid Connected Solar PV System. It will cost you anywhere between 50,000-70,000 per kWp (cost varies based on the type of inverter and panels you choose). To get a step by step procedure to install the same, check our post: How to get a “Grid Connected” Solar PV Rooftop System in India – a step by step procedure.
  • If you are living in an area where there are frequent power cuts, then the best solution for you would be to go for an “Off Grid” Solar PV System. Off Grid Solar PV system will include batteries, which are an expensive part of the system and these would need replacement every few years (4-7 years). A typical Off Grid Solar PV System would cost about Rs 1 lakh.
  • There are two types of Solar PV Cells: Monocrystalline and Polycrystalline. The difference between the two is that Monocrystalline is made of single silicon crystal whereas Multi-crystalline PV is made up of multiple crystals. A monocrystalline is more efficient in converting solar energy into electricity per sq meter area than a multi-crystalline PV. Thus the space required for the same amount of wattage is less in monocrystalline PV panel. Thus it is costlier than a Multi-crystalline PV. The modules available in India are mostly “Polycrystalline”.
  • Typical efficiency of panels available in India is between 13-19%. Please note that lower the efficiency, more panels you would need to get the same amount of electricity and it will occupy more rooftop area.

If you are looking for a subsidy then as on January 2016, Government has released a priority list for processing subsidy claims. Schools, public institutions, etc are higher up on the priority list and residential projects are lowest in the priority list. The process of getting subsidy is explained in detail on this page on our website: How to get a “Grid Connected” Solar PV Rooftop System in India – a step by step procedure

MNRE has also published a list of authorized manufacturers that is available on this link:


Price of Solar Panels in India:

We have collected some data from various e-commerce sites selling solar panels in India and below is the data that we have collected and analyzed. As you can see, the costs get better when the size of panels increase. Also the best selling range is the most economical. So if you want to buy a Monocrystalline 19% efficiency panels or Polycrystalline 17% efficiency panels, then they are the most economical.

Panel Efficiency RangeWatt Range (in Watts)Price Per Wp (in Rs)

Off-Gird Solar Inverter Battery Calculator

We have prepared a calculator that you can use to calculate your solar-inverter-battery requirements. This calculator can only help you to calculate Off-Grid Solar Panel requirements. To use it just use the steps mentioned below:

  1. Add all the appliances that you have in the calculator. You can always change the wattage if you know it is different from what is mentioned in the calculator. You can use the “Add Appliance” button at the bottom to keep adding more appliances. To remove an appliance, press the “X” at the end of each row.
  2. The list of appliances in the calculator is based on some of the most common appliances that we get queries on. If you do not find your appliance in the list, you can select “Custom” at the end and add your own appliance.
  3. Press the “Calculate” button at bottom to get the calculation. Do tick the “Calculate Solar Panel Requirement” checkbox if you want to do calculations for Solar Panels.
  4. You can also print the output if you want.
  5. Please note that this calculator is good for a regular home setup or for a small requirement. It will not work well for big commercial or industrial setups.

1kva solar panel detals


i have 10 kw senction load from electricity board, but my consumption of electricity is 50 kw,so in this condition,can be install 50 kw on grid pv solar, or first we should increase connecting load from 10 kw to 50 kw and then install 50 kw solar pv system, please clear


Different states have different policy like Solar can be 100% or 80% of sanctioned. In your case your DISCOM will object to install Solar for even 10KW as your load seems going high everytime, so first get sanctioned load increased and than seek for Solar Plant (on Grid). As off grid had no such limits.


First you should increase your load 50 ka.
According to electricity regulatory bodies you can install solar plant more than your sanctioned load
More details please contact at 8700721016


please call at 8980170211

Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Any ongrid setup has to have the same amount of kW as the sanctioned load. You will have to get your sanctioned load increased to get increased capacity for solar on grid system.


Sir mere paas marege hall hai lisme total l e d light fan ka iesyemal kiya gaya hai jisme kul bijli ka kharch 6 kw hota hai isliye 10 kw ka solar panal lgwane ka kitna kharch hogA aor keya koi sabsidy milegi


As it is for commercial use you will not get a subsidy. but tax benefits milenge. 10KW off grid 8-9 lac and On grid 6-7 lacs.

I consume about 20-30 units of electricity. What would it cost to install grid type solar system and how much sq ft area required?

Price of full system and what is the subsidy by govt. on this system.


Dear Chetan G could you please mention ur contect no.



Abhishek Jain (Mod)

A 1 kWp system can generate about 4-5 units (on grid) per day. And it will require about 100 sq ft. So for 30 units it would be 6 times the size.
